Weird And True Facts.

I will try and post one weird but true fact each weekday. Perhaps on a Saturday when I have some free time, like now. 

In 2014, a missing woman on a vacation in Iceland was found when it was discovered that she was in the search party looking for herself. (Source is from bu.edu website)

Apparently she never considered herself lost. 

Have a blessed weekend, take care and GOD bless.

@RadMan0508 I thought the same! 

I wish the same logic worked with humans - I wouldn't mind being able to grow a couple of inches taller from warm weather. 😂

Good Thursday morning, perhaps you may find this just as interesting as I do. 

Scotland chose the Unicorn 🦄 as it's national animal. Unicorns have been linked to Scotland for centuries. In Celtic mythology the unicorn was a symbol of purity and innocence, as well as masculinity and power. Tales of dominance and chivalry associated with the unicorn may be why it was chosen as Scotland’s national animal.While the animal is mythological, the ideals it represents are what make it a perfect fit as the national animal for Scotland, and because like this proud beast – Scots would fight to remain unconquered.

The unicorn was first used on the Scottish royal coat of arms by William I in the 12th century. In the 15th century, when King James III was in power, gold coins even appeared with the unicorn on them. When Scotland and England unified under the reign of James VI of Scotland in 1603, the Scottish Royal Arms had two unicorns supporting a shield. When James VI became James I of England and Ireland, he replaced the unicorn on the left of the shield with the national animal of England, the lion, to show that the countries were indeed united.

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.

Good Monday morning and welcome to another weird but true fact. I hope you find this just as interesting as I do.

Good Tuesday morning, this weird but true fact is for all of you Guinea pig lovers who are considering moving to Switzerland. 

Switzerland prohibits the ownership of just one guinea pig. Since guinea pigs are such social creatures, one guinea pig would get lonely so having just one is considered animal abuse in Switzerland. (Source comes from weareteachers.com)

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.

Good Wednesday afternoon, and welcome to weird but true facts. 

I found this fascinating true fact about Shrimp 🦐. A shrimp’s heart is in its head. If that wasn’t interesting enough, due to the nature of their open circulatory system, shrimp have no arteries so their organs just float around in blood!

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.
